A teacher who was arrested following claims that he seduced and slept with a 15-year-old pupil was recently arraigned at Makadara law courts where she pleaded not guilty.
According to court documents, Loise Martha Musyoka was exposed by the teenage boy who confided to his mother about the ordeal he went through at his teacher’s house.
The court heard that “Madam Martha Musyoka unlawfully and intentionally committed the offence against a 15-year-old boy on October 16 at her house in Njiru Sub-County.
Alternatively, Musyoka on the same day at her house is alleged to have touched the boy indecently an act that is contrary to section11 (1) of the sexual offences act of 2006.”
It all started with a phone call with Martha allegedly asking the boy to drop by her house to help fix a wallpaper on October 5.
The boy was not at his home and promised her teacher to help her later when he gets back to his parent’s house a promise which he fulfilled the following day while in the company of seven other pupils from the school.
Days later, the boy went to Martha’s house in the company of his friend. They stayed for some time and since he wanted to use the Wi-Fi and did not know the password, he went to ask Madam Martha who was then in her bedroom.
The court heard that Martha then kissed the boy until she made him sleep with him in her bed against his will. She is claimed to be the one who undressed the boy before victimizing him.
An informer who had been seeing several pupils at her house went to the school she was teaching and made formal complaints that Martha had been taking advantage of her pupils.
This made the victimized boy also reveal to his mother what the teacher did to him. The matter was reported at a nearby police station leading to her arrest.
In court, the magistrate ruled; “having entered a plea of not guilty, the accused is to be released on a bond of Ksh, 200,000 pending hearing on April 4, 2021.”
